Lost Bayou (2019) Tribeca 2019
Odd drama is hampered by a plot that meanders all over the place (why do we need the sheriff who is a pervert?), is a bit wobbly about it's themes and a lead performance that would give Buster Keaton a run as to who has the most immobile stone face. While I like what it is trying to do, and the film kept me interested, it never hangs together. Worse there is a point where you suddenly realize that any drama is going to be minimal, even with the possibility that the characters can raise the dead.
To be honest while never bad, LOST BAYOU never excites and as a result it ends up being just meh.
